Somehow still popular. I've been three times, forced by family. Each time was awful. The pasta is always overcooked. The sauces are goopy and over-salted, and congeal into a lumpy mess. The salad is OUT OF A BAG and always brown at the edges, with globs of dressing to cover up the brown bits. How does a restaurant consistently serve... More

1st off would like to inform that I have been going to this place for over 15 years. I have taken family and Friends here through the years and have always thought this restaurant was great value, with good serve. I was forced to write this review as this beautiful little restaurant has made several little changes over the years... More

We had heard all about Café Amore's Prezzo Fisso menu which includes three courses for only $20, and had to try it for ourselves. I was impressed by the variety of options on the menu... we tried the cheese fonduta and the mushroom crostini, and loved them both. The salads were nice, with a beautiful house dressing and fresh parmesan... More

I have been craving an alfredo sauced pasta for weeks and finally found it at Cafe Amore. I must say my taste buds were ecstatic!!! It was excellent. Creamy, flavourful, rich and plentiful. And served on my favorite flat, wide pasta with tender pieces of chicken. I had enough to take home for another whole meal! My husband ordered a... More

I ordered from the $20 menu; had the shrimp appetizer,only three shrimp in cheese with a soft cheese breadstick. Then a small Caesar salad, again with a breadstick. My main was Shrimp & Chorizo Arrabiata. Delicious. More shrimp and chorizo than I have had per portion in a regular entree. I went to check out the desserts, add $5 for... More

It's not bad or awful but the food isn't outstanding either. The location is convenient to our home and the decor is cute... but it's not fabulous. We had the Bianca Pizza and I did enjoy that! But the calamari was quite bland.

Very extensive menu. They also have a great selection of desserts. Looks like they have recently renovated the decor, it's very cozy and chic. Service was great and food was delicious.

Food was ok!!! Shrimp was done well and the mussels, but the pasta was a bit sticky... did not taste homemade.

While the food's pretty good, the tables are crammed very closely together. It's also ridiculous to try to figure out dessert as you must somehow maneuver from your table to a display case which is located in a traffic area by the door. A real nuisance which disrupts your dinner conversation and enjoyment. We skip dessert. Avoid this place in... More

Heard about this restaurant from friends. Stopped in on a Saturday for lunch. After sitting found the table to be dirty. The server really didn't try very hard to clean it. The menu is just weird. Very specific choices and not lots of them. Would have like to see some better Italian pastas on it. As for the food? Boring.... More
